Sprint Quietly Cuts iPhone 4S Price to $149

Sprint over the weekend dropped the price of the iPhone 4S to $149 — a $50 price drop.

The move comes ahead of what is expected to be the introduction of a new iPhone as soon as next month. Apple is planning a media event for the week of Sept. 9.

Sprint is touting the new price — as well as a waived activation fee — on its Web site. Word is it’s a Sprint promotion, but with Apple’s blessing.

Verizon and AT&T representatives were not immediately available for comment on whether they intend to offer a similar promotion.
